West Virginia Cannabis Industry Certification
Authorized: Green CulturED is approved by West Virginia’s Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC) through the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) to provide this state-required cannabis industry training certification.
This training will deliver a basic understanding of operating a licensed medical cannabis business following the West Virginia Medical Cannabis Act.

We cover regulatory requirements that consist of the West Virginia legal provisions and regulations relevant to the industry’s responsibilities.
Additionally, the training will cover methods to recognize and report identified unauthorized activity, proper handling of medicinal cannabis, proper record keeping, prevention, and detection of diversion. In addition, there is many other transportation, dispensing, emergency preparedness, chemical handling, all the inventory control systems, storage, security, reporting requirements, and worker health and safety considerations that you’ll find prevalent within the industry.
With this compliance training being required, it becomes extremely imperative to understand the underlying regulations to guide patients for lawful use and advise practitioners and organizations for authorized growing and selling of cannabis for medical purposes. This training outlines regulations to control medicinal cannabis at every stage from cultivation to dispensing to medical patients and caregivers.
The laws allow for cannabis to be used for certified medical use by a West Virginia resident with a medical condition and this permits the use of cannabis for certified medical cannabis use. This industry certification demarcates between the lawful and unlawful use of medical cannabis by focusing on all the growing, processing, selling, storage, transportation, prescription, testing, and pricing of product lines.

Cannabis Industry Training Curriculum
The goal of checking for valid Identifications (IDs) is to confirm age to prevent underage access and stop the legal, financial, and social consequences of underage consumption. This is a huge task given the large and increasing numbers of fake IDs on the market and the ease with which they can be obtained. Quality fake IDs are so like real IDs and it’s hard for those checking IDs to tell the difference if they lack training. And this becomes a big compliance problem since workers don’t know what security features to look for and feel peoples’ IDs.
You will learn that preventing and detecting diversion within the cannabis industry is a very serious issue. The ability of a business to cultivate, produce, or sell cannabis products can only be done with strict adherence to government regulations. Without complying with cannabis diversion regulations, there’s no chance of legally running a cannabis business without the fear of a forcible shutdown looming in the distance. Another aspect of diversion is checking for valid Identifications (IDs) to confirm age and prevent underage access.
Learn some of the most important challenges security and safety considerations that you’ll find present in the cannabis industry. Every cannabis cultivation center, processing facility, and medical dispensary must safeguard its products, facilities, employees, and reputation amid the heavily regulated business landscape. It is important to invest in proper cannabis security training so workers are well-equipped and is required as part of the daily regulatory compliance, operational policies and procedures, and to implement industry standards.
West Virginia’s medical cannabis program, known as the Medical Cannabis Act, called for the creation of the Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC). You’ll learn how the Act allows for medical cannabis to be used for certified medicinal use by a resident and the business regulatory requirements. For example, its use is limited by law to the following forms: pill, oil, topical forms including gels, creams, or ointments; a form medically appropriate for administration by vaporization or nebulization, dry leaf, or plant form, tincture, liquid, or transdermal patch.

Accessibility Compliant Platform
One of the biggest challenges that learners face today is "accessibility" in their eLearning solutions. Our platform is American Disability Act (ADA), Accessible Canada Act, etc. compliant, and why we started our "Industry Impact Program".
We are sensitive to disabilities so we provide closed-captioning (sub-titles) for hearing-impaired and screen readers for visually-impaired individuals who want to learn. We have worked extensively to MEET these "accessibility" standards.
Our platform is composed of a complex system with many aspects of development that are always evolving so "accessibility" is NOT a state so it's a continuous process of improvement in response to our learners and platform functionality.
